I have been in contact with hotel, so far they show 2 rooms reserved from our block. If you have reserved a room there check to see if you are part of our block and room rate.
Yep! Dirksen. I got on Hotels.com looking and realized that I was initially on the wrong one. Called the one on Dirksen and booked over the phone at the Opel rate.Scott's Post made me think of something. Be sure you are booked into the Comfort Suites on Dirksen Parkway, not the Comfort Inn on South 6th Street. As to his question, So far I count about 7 Opels for sure and up to 4 or 5 more possible. Maybe 2 or 3 without Opels. I stopped by and talked with Eric Schmidt yesterday to see if he was up to making it downtown Saturday. Eric has been battling cancer but says he is doing fairly well. I am going to help him get his registration documents so he can maybe meet up with us downtown for a least a short time. I don't think we are going to have a problem keeping our Opel Class, But I do hope we can get a big turnout next year for the Nationals. This year will give us a test run for a new Hotel and operating from a new area.
I certainly won’t miss the Nationals. I’m sad enough already to not be part of this year’s show, even only a few Opels will be there. I just fell in love with the RT-66 show when I first was there, it has an irresistible flair that is unlike any other car show.Sorry to hear that Dieter! Hope you will be at the Nationals next year. I was not aware that the Nationals were going to be in Springfield next year. Glad we got a slot for that.
